Goobye ISEE: Monitoring an EVA with RSP: day 4

I've finally been able to have the B-Series switches recognized in SIM. However, I was expecting the Brocade SMI-S provider to give me the serial number, which kind of limits its usefulness for me. The next step is seeing if I can actually have it appear in OSEM.

1. Be sure that the hostname of the switch, and its DNS name, are the same
2. If SIM discovers the switch by scanning the network before finding it from the SMI-S provider, it will create an "unmanaged" entry and it won't override it. So delete them before running an identifying systems on the server which has the SMI-S Provider.

Good luck
